Halloween times set in Macon, Houston

October 24, 2012 

Official trick-or-treating times in Macon and throughout Houston County will be 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31, Halloween itself.

The Macon Police Department will conduct special patrols during that time period, according a police news release.

Houston County Commission Chairman Tommy Stalnaker said he spoke with the mayors of the three cities in Houston County, and all agreed to have trick-or-treating at the same time.

Bibb County sheriff’s deputies aren’t making the same sorts of recommendations, said Lt. Gregory Rachel, public information officer for the sheriff’s office. “We don’t have any designated times for Halloween,” he said.
